THE "CHRISTMAS CAROLS" CAROL
As part of an initiative called "The Twelve Concerts Of Christmas" staged by the Brisbane City Council, Carol Lloyd and Will Goodwin took the stage on Monday Dec 13, 1999 to present their supper club showcase. Originally scheduled to be held under the stars in King George Square the show was forced, under threat of inclement weather, to move indoors and ultimately took place on the stage of the Brisbane City Hall from 7.30pm. Support act Glasshouse, a three piece vocal group performed admirably to polite applause, but the audience were there to see Carol and she did not disappoint them. Strong performances of songs such as 'Cry Me A River', 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me', 'Just To Get My Name In Lights' and 'The Birth Of The Blues' were met with tumultous applause from the compact but highly supportive and appreciative crowd. "The Twelve Concerts Of Christmas" comprises twelve individual concerts being staged from Dec 10, 1999 featuring performances by acts such as Kamahl, The Ten Tenors, Margret RoadKnight and the fabulous Lloyd & Goodwin. Don't miss them!
CAROL GOES BROADWAY!
Fans of Carol Lloyd will be excited to hear that the great lady has returned to the stage once again! But be warned, this is a Carol Lloyd you will not have seen before. Accompanied by pianist / vocalist Will Goodwin, Carol has been performing at private, corporate and charity functions for the last 12 months presenting a repertoire of jazz, blues and Broadway showtunes. Long gone are the flowing locks of flaming red hair and the famous 'hook' nose. These days Carol cuts a sophisticated look on stage with cropped and styled peroxide hair, long black gowns and sequined jackets.
On Saturday Oct 02, 1999 she and Will Goodwin headlined the Seniors Week Grand Finale Concert at the Brisbane City Hall singing a choice selection of wonderful standards. Songs like 'New York, New York', 'Don't Cry Out Loud' and 'Oklahoma' to name just a few were highlighted in the medleys dedicated to the songs of Peter Allen, Al Jolson and a special grand musical tour of the USA. Others on the concert bill were the extremely talented vocal quartet Aim 4 More and country singers Laurel Edwards and Troy Cassar Daley.
